What? You haven't read that Dr. Seuss book?!

I recently read a book called “The Gospel According to Dr. Seuss” by James Kemp. It is a book that my mom gave me a few years ago and I never got around to reading it until recently. It is a short book, only 90 pages, but it is one that I enjoyed. Kemp, former Pastor, gives his insight into the deeper, Biblical meanings that he found hidden in Dr. Seuss’ books.
The more I read this book the more I realized how many Dr. Seuss books that I HAVEN’T read. Out of the 12 books that he wrote about, I’ve only read 3 of them. That’s not even half!!
So one of my 101 challenges is to read all of Dr. Seuss’ books, I have listed them below. I will be checking them off as I read them. All of books that are already dated I have read before, now onto the rest of them. ;)


Theodor Geisel wrote over 60 children's books during his life. He used the pen name Dr. Seuss for all of the books that he both wrote and illustrated. The pen name Theo LeSieg (his last name spelled backwards) was used for books he wrote but others illustrated. Full list of all books written by Dr. Seuss.
